Winter Totoro

Standard

Totoro winter cape

Isabella has outgrown her winter coat, so after she recently watched and fell in love with “My Neighbor Totoro”, we made her a winter Totoro cape.

The pattern is Burda 9674, view A which makes an unlined cape, but we chose to add a lining with some “fur” leftover from a couple of years ago.  The cape has pockets and a lined hood, so should be plenty warm for Alabama winters.  The outer fabric (not really sure what to call it?), was purchased several years ago and never put to use before.  The toggle fasteners are from Hobby Lobby.

Totoro felt applique diy

Totoro was made from wool and acrylic felt with double-sided fusible on the back and stitched on with monofilament thread.

It’s always fun to make a one-of-a-kind outfit for Isabella that coordinates with her current movie favorites.
